I’m absolutely delighted that Travelling in the Dark will be launched at the UK’s oldest book store, Hatchards Piccadilly, on 12 July at 6.30pm. Four of the authors from the Fairlight Moderns series will be reading and signing books along with the wonderful team from Fairlight Books, our families and friends. Piccadilly was the first place I worked after arriving in London twenty-five years ago so I am thrilled to be returning there for this special occasion.

As I began writing Travelling in the Dark over six years ago, the publication of this book is the culmination of a long journey. My book has found an excellent home with the creative, thoughtful and inspirational new publisher Fairlight Books. I greatly admire their enthusiasm and determination in championing literary fiction and the beautiful but often over-looked form of the novella.Travelling cover

You can find out more in this interview on the Fairlight Books website.

There are also some new reviews and ratings up on Goodreads.

Travelling in the Dark is available from all good bookshops and online. There are a variety of ways to order which you see on the publisher’s book page here.

 

We are also out and about at some festivals with Cornish Short Stories this month. First of all with reading and discussion in Paper Wings at Penzance Litfest on Saturday 7 July at The Acorn.

And then we’ll be back with more readings at the truly unique gathering that is Port Eliot Festival on Friday 27 July at 1.45pm and Saturday 28 July at 2pm in The Tiddy Tent.

Please note that both these events are ticketed.
